Technical specification means that we detect and document in detail how a conceptualised and service-designed web service is built. As the number of projects and their complexity increase, the importance and workload of this phase of will increase significantly.
What is clarified and documented in the technical specification work phase varies from project to project. For example, the following topics are addressed almost without exception:
- The choice of publishing system and reasoning behind it
- Needs for content management tools (page templates, modularity)
- Server solution and technical boundary conditions (performance, security, backup…)
- Integrations – what, from where, to what and through which interfaces does the information flow?
- Technical optimisation measures for improving search engine discoverability
- Design of an analytics solution
- How to implement the functionalities from a technological point of view: “the mega-navigation of the web service is implemented as a Vue.js component to maximize the user experience”
Depending on the project, careful execution of the work phase will vary in time and expertise needed. Once we have carefully considered what and why, and how, the conditions for a high-quality web service project that runs smoothly on schedule and on budget will begin to exist.
The technical specification is typically the latter part of a service design and specification project that we implement together with our client. Often, we perform specification as a separate project, after which the customer tenders the implementation phase. In this case, we will also participate in the tendering as an implementer.
The benefits of the careful service design and definition phase include:
- Careful definition is a prerequisite for bidders to make an accurate and comprehensive description and offering for the project
- When the specification is done carefully, the actual planning and implementation of the project also proceeds smoothly on schedule and on budget.
- All decisions made in the project are based on careful consideration, analytics, and possible research
